In the first match, a fine bowling and fielding display dismissed Nottinghamshire for just 60 defending 110 at Welbeck.

Tash Farrant (1/13) and Arlene Kelly (2/11) struck with the new ball before a Grace Gibbs run-out helped reduce the hosts to 21 for four.

Megan Belt bowled a trademark tidy spell of 2/16 off four overs before Jenny Jackson (1/11) and Gibbs (2/2) mopped up the tail.

Earlier, Lauren Griffiths (25), Phoebe Franklin (23) and Alice Davidson-Richards (14) were the only Kent players to reach double figures in tricky batting conditions early in the day.

In the second match, 2017 T20 champions Lancashire won the toss and opted to field first restricting Kent to 115.

The Red Rose county chased the modest target with 14 balls to spare. Davidson-Richards and Rowson took a wicket each.

Entry to the Women’s ODI and all home Women’s matches is included in all Kent Memberships an option for Six Pack holders.
